In our last newsletter and update we described the common and broad elements which will progressively appear in the ISO standards.
This newsletter provides additional information on the planned ISO9001:2015 changes.
- Integration of 10 common elements across all ISO standards and thereby facilitating integration of business operations
- Identical numbering for all clauses across the ISO standards
- Increased focus on risk and risk management
New ISO9001:2015 structure:-
The following structure is proposed for the ISO9001:2015 update and could be used to progressively align a company’s existing management system.
For simplicity the first 3 major clauses, ‘Scope’, ‘Normative References’, ‘Terms & Definitions’ have been excluded from the details below.
Context of the organisation
|4.1 – Understanding the organisation|
|4.2 – Understanding the needs & expectations of interested parties (clients mainly)|
|4.3 – Determining the scope of the management system|
|4.4 – Management system|
